Grading the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2020 NFL Draft

Chase Claypool Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver

The Pittsburgh Steelers entered the 2020 NFL Draft without a first-round pick after making an in-season trade with the Miami Dolphins for safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. Needless to say, that trade was a ‘win’ for Pittsburgh and factors into a 2020 draft class that was unique, to say the least.

Their first pick didn’t come until No. 49 overall and they ended the draft with a total of six selections. With quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the twilight of his career, it’s critical that the Steelers hit on this year’s class.

2020 NFL Draft Class

2.49: Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame
3.102: Alex Highsmith, Edge, Charlotte
4.124: Anthony McFarland, RB, Maryland
4.135: Kevin Dotson, G, Louisiana-Lafayett
6.198: Antoine Brooks Jr., S, Maryland
7.232: Carlos Davis, DT, Nebraska
